Swim-Two-Birds is an ominous place. Snámh-dá-én, as it is called in Gaelic, is located on the banks of the Shannon River in the middle of Ireland. That, in any case, is what is written in Flann O'Brien's novel, "At Swim-Two-Birds". The Irish author's great work, a droll story that appeared in 1939, amused James Joyce, impressed Graham Greene and retained its influence and impact even after O'Brien's death. In 1990, when saxophonist and composer Achim Gaetjen created his...

The novel is full of sarcasm and dark humour, even as it treats its serious subject, revealing the hypocrisies of the time. It has been the subject of...
